If you’re itching for a vacation, but aren’t ready to leave the country, you don’t have to worry! You won’t believe what this beautiful place has to offer.
The first thing you should see can be done on both coasts— whale watching.
In BC, whale watching is huge and the best company I have found is Eagle Wings in Victoria, as they guarantee sightings.
Let’s head East because Newfoundland and Labrador are one of the most spectacular whale watching places on Earth. The world’s largest population of humpback whales return every year to feed on the whale buffet along the East coast.
There are many other species you can also view. But remember, bring binoculars!
There are a few more hoops to jump through to travel to the East Coast right now, but it is possible, especially if you are fully vaccinated. Click here for more information.
Close to the City (Toronto)
Something most Torontonians know about is the edge walk on the CN Tower. This activity allows participants to walk around the CN Tower with a suit and harness. If you enjoy heights and the beautiful, overwhelming view of the city, then this is an unforgettable experience for you!

Winter Blues? No problem!
Winter in Canada is not as bad as they make it out to be. In Quebec City, winter is a wonderland. The Hotel de Glace is carved entirely out of ice and seems like a page taken out of a storybook. As well, the best seasons to travel to Quebec are January and April as its famous carnival takes place.
Time to get back to the wildlife, in British Columbia, you can sometimes spot the very rare Spirit bear. Travel down Spirit Bear Lodge and try your luck at finding the mysterious bear.

Let’s not forget the natural light show in the North— the Aurora Borealis’. Tundra North Tours is a great, easy way to see this natural wonder.
Also, don’t miss popping into Dawson’s city for a traditional cocktail— the Sour Toe Cocktail. This goes back to the days of prohibition when a rum runner lost his toe to frostbite and they put it in moonshine. In 1975, someone found it and turned it into a cocktail. To this day, you can drink a cocktail with a real toe in it.
